The outward appearance does not do credit to the Quality

We stayed at the adjoining hotel Court Meridian and so after a long drive we decided to dine at the Aresi restaurant. The food matched the description in the menu and was delicious, the sea food appetiser was really good. The wine menu looked to be small choices and quite expensive but I decided to... read more

Make sure you place your reservation for dinner at noontime. Not because the place get crowded, but because you want to choose your table well. Sit in the very middle of the resto, or at any table facing the entrance. The display of lights is in itself, a show! The rib-eye steaks are succulent and the pasta is plentiful. Pick... More

Very good food and very conveniently located along Waterfront Drive in Subic. They serve some of the best pizzas I've had. This review does not take into consideration the run of the mill breakfast buffet that's served to the guests of Court Meridian Hotel, however.

The free breakfast that comes with the room booked at Court Meridien is served at Aresi's. Eggs done the way you like it, rice congee, fish, sausage, and fresh fruit - that's what they had to offer on the day that I stayed here. The fact that you're 20 steps away from the beach was a plus.

This restaurant was recommended by an acquaintance so we decided to check it out. Had lunch today, I had the pesto with itty bitty shrimp and it was swimming in oil. I asked the waiter if they use leftover pesto sauce and he said "NO, it is not leftover but they precooked the sauce and heat it and then served... More

I had such high expectations with the pesto instead I was disappointed. The pesto pasta was swimming in oil, even when I tried to drain portion of the oil off the plate it would not reduce the fluid coating the spaghetti. They should change the pasta used for this dish not spaghetti maybe something thicker to absorb all the OIL!

Our visit to this restaurant demonstrated both good and bad food. I had a creamy seafood pasta dish which was excellent. My companion had an Italian sausage pasta dish which was sour and unpleasant. The service was less than attentive. Overall I found the experience disappointing.

I have eaten here on several occasions. It is located in the Court Meridian Hotel. Very good food, great location. Sitting outside is recommended.

Weekly visits in Subic won't be complete without dining in Aresi. From breakfast to after dinner - awesome experience! Their appetizers, main course, pizza and desserts are soooo delicious. My favorite and a must try is their chocolate lava cake. Friendly and very accommodating staff. Highly recommended!

We waited for 45 minutes just for my salpicao and pork chops. One san mig light didn't arrive and so as the crepe! Staff seemed not minding your follow or they are used to these kind of reactions from customers. There was another customer who complained about their service accuracy, time and quality of food. Clam soup and salad didn't... More
